Space marines used as Chaos troopsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Games Workshop Discussion : One Thread
What does everyone think about using a space marine army and painting them/converting them to look like chaos so it'd be like a chaos army with space marine troops. ( Maybe the fallen could have landspeeders, dreadnaughts, etc.?

there is no problem with that.

That's basically what chaos is.
You don't even need to convert the marines just because they are Chaos doesn't mean they are mutilated and possed it just means they are renegade marines who have turned against the Emporer.

There's nothing wrong with that at all. Chaos are simply space marines gone bad. You probably want to add some of the convental chaos models to your army after time to give it some flavor. Also, you may want to totally produce a twisted chaos lord, such as the converted Terminator Sergent I converted. He has spikes all over his body and a dead Space Wolf up on the trophie rack, and bolter holes everywhere.
